The BlueCard® Program
As a Blue Cross and Blue Shield plan member, you are a member of the BlueCard Program. The program covers you within and outside of the U.S., providing access to doctors and hospitals in more than 200 countries and territories around the world and giving you the peace of mind that you'll be able to find the healthcare provider you need. The plan offers numerous savings that Blue Cross and Blue Shield has negotiated with doctors and hospitals in the area. For covered services, you should not have to pay any amount above these negotiated rates. To learn more about the program, review this BlueCard Program brochure.
Preventive vs. Diagnostic Care
Do you know the difference?
Preventive care helps protect you from getting sick. Diagnostic care is used to find the cause of existing illnesses. If your doctors suggests you take a test when you have no symptoms, that is considered preventive care. If you have symptoms and you take a test to see what is causing them, that is diagnostic care.
Anthem health plans offer a number of preventive care services from doctors in your plan's network which cost you nothing. (If you use a doctor outside the network, you may have to pay a small portion of the costs.) Check out this flyer which identifies preventive physical exams, screening tests and immunizations for children, women, and adults.
Getting regular check-ups and exams can help you stay well and catch health problems early. It may even save your life!
